We will start at 7am picking you up either at Assala Square or the Lighthouse. Then we head out towards the valley known as Wadi Gnai with an offroad Car. Our certified rock climbing instructor and a Bedouin Guide from the local Muzeina tribe will accompany you. There is going to be tea and coffee made the traditional way over the fire and the bedouin guide will stay with us as there is no reception inside the valley. Around 1:30pm we will return to drop you off at the Pickup spot again roughly at 2pm.

Frequently asked questions
Is there reception in Wadi Gnai?
Even though on some occasions the bedouins might find reception, do not rely on that, mostly there is no reception in Wadi Gnai, so make your arrangements with whoever is in town before leaving the asphalt road.
How are the toilets in Wadi Gnai?
There are no accessible or maintained toilets and due to the high influx of tourists try to avoid seeking the toilet inside the Wadi, it will eventually lead to a problematic situation with the ground water in the valley. If you must, bury it deep and bag any toilet paper you use.
Where can I throw away my trash inside Wadi Gnai?
There is no garbage collectors in Wadi Gnai nor bins. Collect any trash you find and bring it back to Dahab, there is noone regularly cleaning this valley.
Can I come with my own car and park in Wadi Gnai?
It is not customary to bring your own car by the local bedouin rules, so avoid bringing your own car and instead work out with your bedouin guide how to get inside.
